Buckle up.

We’re all searching aren’t we?
.
Miles, he’s searching for Waldo.
.
Me? I’m searching too, but what it is I’m searching for, isn’t as easy as a man with a striped red and white shirt and glasses.
.
At any point in life we are trying to figure out: what’s next, what do I need to change? What can I do to make __ better/different?
.
This pandemic has made a lot of people (self included) wonder; is this a time to pivot? We search. We question.
.
I wish there was a magic place to find all the answers. I wish there was someone who would just say “This is what’s next”.
.
But instead, I feel like I’m being told to buckle up, keep my arms in at all times, and enjoy the ride… without being able to see whats in the distance.
.
It. Is. Scary.
.
But if there is one thing I continue to learn, it is that we are never alone. Even (and especially) in the midst of uncertainty.
.
He sits with us in the quiet, in the still. He gives us community in friends and family. We aren’t meant to go it alone, ever. It is up to us on who we do life with. He hopes he can be part of the equation, but he also gives us choice in our community.
.
We are all searching. Maybe, it’s for life’s next chapter, or maybe it’s Waldo….
.
But whatever the search, remember this; You. Are. Not. Alone.
.
So buckle up. Arms in (or out, because let’s be honest, rides are more fun that way) and enjoy the ride.
.
Don’t shut your eyes. Keep them open. And if it gets scary, hold the hand of the one sitting with you, and give a squeeze.
.
You got this.
